The Museum of Central Australia is based in the heart of Alice Springs. It tells the story of the region’s unique natural history, following the evolution of the landscape and the fascinating creatures that inhabited it.

From the big bang to the present day, meteorite fragments, fossils and interpretive displays detail the geological history of Central Australia.

Central Australian fauna is highlighted in impressive displays. Temporary exhibitions change annually.

The Museum of Central Australia also houses the Strehlow Research Centre, one of Australia’s most important collections of film, sound, archival records and museum objects relating to Indigenous ceremonial life.
